"Ellie helped guide me and my wife through our first home purchase. She was there for us whenever we had questions throughout the entire process and we had a ton of questions. When we first met, we had a virtual meeting where she got an understanding our needs and wants. Using that knowledge, we visited several properties together. During each visit, she came well prepared and did homework ahead of time to share details with us of what matched our criteria and what didn't. She had a very good sense of the quality of effort that went into renovations and would carefully nitpick all the details live for us. We would highly recommend Ellie if you're looking for a home in this neck of the woods."
- Victor, House Buyer, Closed Nov '22

"Ellie helped us find our home in Burlingame after months of searching across the Bay Area. She helped us find a pre-listing that we eventually bought. Over the process, we found Ellie is to be smart, punctual and honest. She was always available on phone or email, and quick to respond. We valued her honest opinion on the homes as well as the disclosures, as she helped us as a first-time homebuyer. She pointed out some subtle anomalies in a few disclosures as we were looking at homes. Honest and knowledgeable, we would highly recommend her services!"

"Ellie is a great agent! She is not only very professional and knowledgeable, but also very patient to her clients.. When we started doing the house hunting, we were inexperienced and uncertain how to choose the property and which area we should land on. She was always be willing to take time on listening and learning our needs. She was very patient to take us to many tours and explained to us the pros and cons of each location and type of house, which truly helped us build up the sense and knowledge of the market of each area. She then guided us to narrow down the targets. The important thing was she never pushed her opinions on the clients. She always respected us and tried her best to provide professional feedbacks to help us make the right decisions. At the same time, Ellie’s rich experieces and strong networking skills really helped me on the pricing strategy and deal making. She was always standing on her client’s side and took care of them. She’s very responsive not matter when we needed her (almost like 24/7 service), and her team was very friendly and professional as well. Her team also did a great job at the closing stage to make it very fast, smooth and hassle free. Ellie not only helped us finding a house, she also recommended other good services based on her own experiences and feedbacks from her clients. In all, we are very lucky to have Ellie as our agent, who is a professional, knowledgeable, responsive and sincere agent. We will strongly recommend her to our friends and anyone who need help on their housing hunting."

You'll be lucky to get Ellie as your realtor :) "

"Ellie is very professional and prompt- a nice combination of qualities in a real estate agent.. She always got back to all our doubts/questions promptly and that really helped in our decision making. She made sure to come and visit all the homes we said were interested in even on a very short notice. She always did her homework about all the properties we were interested in.

Ellie was present at every step, answering questions and providing useful insight.

Ellie worked with the agents on the other side to coordinate timings, arrange walk-throughs, and facilitated various steps to help the deal go through.

"Ellie was absolutely amazing to work with! From our first initial meeting, she walked me through all the neighborhoods in Daly City/SSF (the areas I was interested in) and talked about what she is seeing in terms of comps and supply in each neighborhood. She was clearly very knowledgeable and offered great insights. Through her deep expertise in the area and relationships she's built over the years, we were able to get in contract for the 2nd home we made an offer on which we feel very fortunate about in this market.
